The game won't let me increase my resolution over 1280x1040. I have become spoiled by modern graphics. Is there a way to increase the resolution over this?

I just found a solution that doesn't require any config-file hacks:

Right-click the game in steam --> properties --> launch options, set them to

-resx=1600 -resy=900

for 1600x900.

However, when I did this, the bottom of my screen became tinted purple. There doesn't seem to be any way to fix this other than turning the resolution back down, which I ended up doing :\

Alternatively, if the above doesn't work for you (or you want to use a config-file hack), open up the file

%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Games\UnrealEngine3\TryGame\Config\TryEngine.ini

in a text-editor like notepad. Find the lines that begin with resx and resy, and change the values to whatever you'd like. There have been mixed reports about this either working or not working.

Did you get the purple tint with config editing? – kotekzot Jun 22 '12 at 5:29
What if you don't have the game through Steam? – GnomeSlice Jun 25 '12 at 21:14
@GnomeSlicE: I was under the impression that this game requires Steam to play? Regardless, both solutions still apply (for the first one, just create a shortcut on the desktop and change its launch options instead) – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Jun 25 '12 at 22:49
